Crazy fabric ladies!

Well did you shop until your eyes went squiffy last night over at the #greatukfabricdestash?  Emily you are a star for organising it, thank you for a fun evening; I think it is fair to say the Royal Mail will be transporting a higher than average number of squishy packages around the country this week!

I sold more than I spent; actually I sold the 2 cuts of fabric, and as the evening drew to a close, I bought some scraps from Jessie aka lovely fabric pedlar Sew and Quilt.  I missed out on one lot that I really wanted, and I didn't even enter into the mad crazy Heather Ross frenzies!

It was probably a mistake to load up my pictures so early as with almost 1000 pics in the group, the first ones were miles down the list within minutes, I know I didn't have time to look back, just in case!

Soooooooooooooo, if anyone would like either (or both!) of these voile infinity scarf packs, please leave a comment below - first come first served, I only have one of each - and please, if you are a No Reply Blogger leave an email address!
***BOTH SOLD***
Valori Wells - Wrenly & Anna Maria Horner pink voile.
Anna Maria Horner - Field Study & grey voile.
The prices include postage for UK only; if you are abroad, that's OK too, but I will have to add £3.50 for the additional postage.

There are many online tutorials to make these scarves, I use the Anna Maria original, with an open loop, but if you google infinity scarf tutorial there are loads, and honestly they are so quick to make, (says she, with one set still waiting on her FAL list, ahem!).

So it's back to the secret stuff for me, although I did quickly make a few more #economyblockalong blocks this afternoon, picture proof tomorrow, promise xxx

  2. Coming out of the destash with more money than you went in with must be quite a skill!

  4. It was so much fun. I only joined Instagram a week or so ago and I had no idea that it would bring me so much lovely fabric. I fear it will be beans on toast for the rest of the month!
    PS My husband is watching Flash Gordon and I just had a revelation about your blog name.

  5. Balls, missed out on the scarves! It was mental last night, I was trying to do bath time for my little one, and fabric buying with the other hand, by 8 I had to come offline, it was making me feel stressed, and that naughty Mrs S beat me to a few good ones, I cursed her, a lot!!

  6. Well done! I sold more than I bought too but that was easy because I'm fasting! Good fun though and a great exercise on stash sorting!

  7. You did well. I followed it all on IG but only the people I follow anyway. I wasn't buying just living vicariously!

  10. Well done you! I sold, but didn't buy. Didn't get rid of the Liberty though, bugger! Maybe I'll retry when I'm home from gallivanting around the country next week!

  11. I haven't succumbed to the joys of IG yet and I'm on a fabric diet, so maybe next year.

  13. It looked such fun, wish I hadn't been too knackered from clients all of Sunday to participate! Mind you, after making all that effort to pare down my stash a couple of months ago I probably don't need to start rebuilding it quite yet.
